Our Campaigns

MCAN fights climate change by promoting clean energy and educating the public on the dangers of dirty energy. Our local chapter members, aided by MCAN, work with their elected state officials to increase renewable energy opportunities and combat legislation that supports dirty energy.

Clean Energy

Clean energy is produced when solar, wind and hydro are used to create power. These forms of power create jobs, reduce our air and water pollution, and aid in the prevention of further climate change. Check out our clean energy fact sheet to learn more. 

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency reduces the amount of energy required to produce products and provide services. It is an easy and cost-effective way to slow climate change. Energy is wasted through transmission, heat loss, and inefficient technology every day, costing people money and increasing pollution. Read More... 

Dirty Energy

Dirty energy is any type of power that creates pollution and climate change. Our increased dependence on natural gas and fossil fuels continues to harm our environment and the well-being of the human race. Everyday carbon and other toxic chemicals are being released into our atmosphere, causing irreparable damage.  

Carbon Pricing

Massachusetts Climate Action Network (MCAN) is a founding member of a new coalition, the Massachusetts Campaign for a Clean Energy Future. Together with allies in environmental, business, labor, faith, health and civic groups across the state, MCAN is working to reduce greenhouse gas pollution by taxing those who emit CO2.

Offshore Wind

Offshore wind farms are groups of wind turbines built in federal waters, five to fifteen miles from shore, which use wind to generate clean energy. Wind farms are particularly advantageous because wind produces the most energy during morning and daytime hours, when electricity demands are highest. Read More...

Net Metering

Net metering is the process by which consumers can be credited the excess of energy they produce when they give it back to the grid. Net metering is controversial in Massachusetts because some believe clean energy users are not paying to maintain transmission lines, thereby increasing energy rates for non-solar energy users. Read More...

    Is it better to buy REC’s from somebody like Terrapass or through your local electric utility company (Eversource for us)? Or does it matter? Thanks everybody

    This is an amazing cause! I hope everything works out your organization’s favor in the end. Our environment should be one of our top priorities!

    I do hope everything finds its way to making a healthy environment in the end. Cleanliness is a huge issue and the more we bring it to attention the more i believe we will start to see changes. http://www.medicinehatroofing.com/

    You’re dong very important work. I agree with Jen Stevenson about protecting water resources. I live in a town that is on 100% well water and we don’t know where our water comes from except for vague statements about bedrock. and one head well.

    However, I’d like to have a copy of your Climate Action Plan to give to our Town Administrator while working with her on energy-efficiency issues. Kindly send it to: [email protected]
    Thanks, Francie

    I’m hoping our incoming President and administration can embrace a lot of the ideas here. Keeping our environment clean should be a top priority no matter what your politics are. I am especially interested in cleaner energy which is what brought me here.

    Hi- I noticed water isn’t mentioned as a campaign. Given the trajectory of population growth it seems like preserving and protecting our freshwater sources should be a priority.
